So we had few days of not much going on....what can I say? Now we have a lot going on and I will be a day behind probably for a couple of days. Oh well.
Yesterday Mike and I checked out a few more wineries located near Lincoln. We headed out that way so we could end up, after a couple of wineries, at Jen's dad and stepmom's house to watch the first Husker game of the season. The Huskers creamed UTC which was expected but also showed that they, the Huskers, have a lot more work to do themselves before playing any better teams. It is really fun to see like the whole state turn out for these games. You could never doubt for a moment that Nebraskans love their Huskers.
So, 2 wineries in the morning:
You can see the picnic tables in front of this tasting room at James Arthur. Most of the wineries have a place like this to enjoy the tastings, have a full glass of wine or buy a bottle and have it there. Some of the wineries also sell bread, cheeses, etc......very nice
A staff person took us out back here and we got to watch the workers and the de-stemming process for one of the grapes. That was a fun bonus!
We found a lot more dryer red wines at these wineries and are very happy about that as they tend to be what we prefer. Though Mike does like the occasional port and will taste those if available.
Finally for the day a sunset picture taken just outside the Deer Springs winery. Enjoy! Don't forget to tap on the pics to make them larger.
